They say crime doesn’t pay, but when you have a giant Wookie pulling you out of your healing tank and you get thrown across your castle, that’s what happens. In this exciting episode of the Book of Boba Fett, we get more build up and suspense. I did not like this episode, and so far it is my least favorite, mostly because I am still angry about what happened during it. This is all just my opinion, but I am going to be a lot harsher on this episode out of spite than I was with the other episodes.
In this episode we get to catch up with Boba Fett’s past with the Tuskens. Fett gets to negotiate with the local fish people for the sand people to live in peace. The negotiation went really well, but sadly the fish people got confused and now the Tuskens rest in peace. Though I did not see our beloved stick wielding fiend that we named KoRn in the pile of bodies, we can assume they are also dead because we do not see them for the rest of the season. This makes Boba Fett mad and it made me mad as well. The Tuskens were my favorite part of this show because it was one of the few things I enjoyed about the fact we are still on Tatooine.
Then we are literally dragged out of the flashback along with Boba Fett as the weird, stilted Wookie expression I made earlier suddenly becomes relevant. Krrsantan throws our poor protagonist around the room before the problem comes to save him. They must have seen Boba Fett struggling in their rearview mirrors. It takes all of their efforts, including a couple green pig people to lock Krrsantan in the rancor pit. It looks like they now have a new monster.
In one scene, the problem is solved as what seemed to be the main antagonists that were developed in previous episodes show up on his doorstep and tell Boba Fett they will trade Krrsantan for a real rancor and a meet and greet with Danny Trejo. Then, in a strange twist of fate, the antagonists state that they are leaving. No readers, they are not just leaving the planet, they are taking an exit from the plot itself. They leave, and, say it with me now, are never seen again for the rest of the season.
This episode confused me, it took so much development that eventually was just abandoned or killed off. I still have hope for the series, but this episode was a rough one.
